Temperate Grasslands

Temperate Grasslands are a division of a larger biome grouping of grasslands that includes tropical savannas. Both biome types are characterized by a dominace of grasses, yet temperate grasslands differ signifincatly from savannas. First unlike savannas that can have trees and shrubs scattered throughout, temperate grasslands have trees and shrubs absent. Temperate grasslands are also found in less tropical ecosystems and thus have a larger temperate flucation during the year. Temperatures in temperate grasslands can vary tremendously which has a large impact on growing seasons. Generally they also have less rainfall. Temperate grasslands are found throughout the globe, generally in the interiors of the continents and north or south of the topic of cancer/copercorn.

Living and Non-living Things

The living things in the temperate grasslands are animals such as; buffalo, caribou, prairie dogs, lynx, plants, and etc. The non-living things are; rocks, trees (even though there are barley any), and the grass.


The climate in the temperate grasslands is sometimes cold, sometimes hot, and maybe cool, or warm out. In the temperate grasslands there are diiferent climates everyday depending on the seasons' of course... and what month it is.
